CEhZ applied to Brahman and Angus cattle. (A) Contrasting the heterozygosity corrected compression efficiency of Brahman and Angus coincides with a known signature of selection around the 25 Mb region of bovine chromosome 14 incorporating the gene PLAG1 associated with tropical adaptation and a number of phenotypic traits such as fertility and growth. New regions predicted include EN1 for Brahman (B), EYA1 for Angus (C) and ARID4A for Angus (D).
